The book discusses emotional healing. Starts out discussing PTSD and how you know you have it. The book has different sections, Part 1 and Part 2 is called reclaiming me. Part 3 is reclaiming peace. Then the last section is reclaiming sanity. The book does have some real life stories in it.
A couple of quotes from the book, “ the reality is that our past, our whole past, affects our present.” “ Only you can control yourself “.
There is a couple of chapters on being angry. A lot of good points on controlling your angry. I like the one about getting angry while driving at other people when running late. Not the other person fault that your running late.
I received an complimentary book from Celebrate Lit. I was not required to write an positive review. This is my own opinion.
